Tzaddik's Grave Vandalized in Poland

The tomb of the great early Hasidic Master Elimelekh in Lezajsk, Poland, one of the major sites of Jewish pilgrimage in Poland, was vandalized the night of March 4-5, just two weeks before the anniversary of his death in 1788. Vandals scrawled anti-Semitic slogans and a big swastika on the building protecting the grave site in the Lezajsk Jewish cemetery. Police are investigating.
